An egg contains naturally occurring Vitamin D, 6 grams of high-quality protein, 300 mg choline, 5gm of fat (1.5gm of saturated fat), high sulfur, vitamins, minerals and all 9 essential amino acids.

Boiled and roasted eggs were cooked in a spicy onion-tomato gravy. The sweetness from onion and tomatoes blends exotically with the garam masala and spice powders.
